My Credit Card Numbers – Bitstrips

Talk about Oceans 11: Earlier this week, 11 people from around the world were charged with stealing tens of millions in credit and debit card numbers. By March 2007, 45.7 million customer cards were compromised. Attorney General Michael Mukasey said in a press conference “They used sophisticated computer hacking techniques that gathered enormous quantities of personal financial data.” He also said he suspects that “a lot of people are unaware that their identifying information has been comprimised”. The breech was first identified in January 2007, and suspected to have started as early as July 2005. TJX Cos., OfficeMax, Barnes & Noble, Sports Authority, Boston Market and DSW were some retailers affected.  The list of suspects could be more than 11, but officials are not saying who they have in custody.

Web Sites I go to Daily

It’s no surprise I am on the web a lot. I work on a ton of stuff for Geekazine, Dorkazine and for other projects. I would say my web usage is around 12 to 16 hours in a day (computer usage being a little more). So finding the good websites is key and when I do, I stick with them. Here is an insight to the websites I go to daily to pass the info along. We’ll skip the obvious sites (Geekazine and Dorkazine).

Digg Labs – Watch the people surf. 1

Digg Labs – Watch the people surf.

I have to admit, I have sat there and watched the Diggs happen. Little graphics showing how people are surfing the Digg Website. Either the Stack option, the bigspy, pics or even the arc. What am I talking about? Well, over on you have Digg Labs ( . The Labs are a great way to see who is selecting what. It also gives you an idea how popular a story is in a graphic way. The Stack, Swarm and Arc options show a graphic interface, while the bigspy just pushes text down the screen – the bigger the text, the more popular the article. The pics can be interesting to watch. It may take a while if nobody submits a picture with the article. Not as exciting at the arc or stack, but it does have some merit. All in all, it’s pretty cool to watch. Just...

Ruputer Turns 10 5

Ruputer Turns 10

It’s a watch. It’s a Computer. No – it’s a RUPUTER. RuPuter is a 16-bit 3.6 MHz watch with 128K of Ram. It has a 102×64 pixel monochrome LCD. It also contained a joystick for gaming, and 6 buttons for functionality. It could connect via serial interface or Infra Red to communicate with other devices, like another Ruputer or Windows 95. It really was a marvel of the time – 1998 to be exact. It contained W-PS-DOS version 1.16, and had an icon filled GUI. It also had an expansion option of another 128K. There were some competitors to this like the Fossil Wrist PDA. It had a slightly bigger screen , connected via USB and ran Palm III software. The batteries didn’t last long, but the watch was still impressive. Still, this is about the Ruputer – for on April 9th, 2008, the Ruputer turns 10. It was concidered the first...
